Our Family in Norway

Flag of Norway

At the age of 22, Godfreda Hansdotter left Hidra, her island village on the southern coast of Norway, for the United States. She left many relatives in Norway, including her uncle (her father's brother, Olof Mandius Hansen) and his family.

Scandinavian surnames have undergone changes over the years. In the early 1940s, many Norwegian family names were changed, and the name Haneferd was adopted by the descendants of Olof Mandius Hansen.

One of his sons, Sigvarth Emil Haneferd, 1894-1969, and his wife, Maalfrid, had five children: Hein, Turid, Tore, Signe, and Gudleik.

In 2004, Russ visited Norway and was introduced to his second cousins for the first time in the beautiful homeland of his grandmother.
